Excellent overall – at least for people that want to live in Greece but not only for them.
Great Professors, Applied education culture, Best Career Prospects
I met some amazing people and experienced so much during my year there.
I feel Alba really helped to boost my confidence and encouraged me to become more ambitious about my future.
There was plenty of support from the professors and the career office for both academic / educational issues and for career issues.
Through ALBA I had some really good opportunities which I probably wouldn’t have had at another uni.
The curriculum of the program is great and up-to-date, following market trends. The professors are always willing to help and very responsive to students’ concerns. And the career office is one of the biggest assets of the university!View more
Leading business school in Greece. Great professors and courses and the location is great near to downtown metro and bars/restaurants. If you want to live in Greece then you have many opportunities to work here.View more
The professors are very respectful and taught us a lot of new things based on their experience that are outside of the curriculum. The whole journey at Alba was full of learning and fun. The networking is top-notch!View more
Alba has developed a unique course structure which makes learning fun. They have some really experienced faculties who are readily accessible. The infrastructure is great, classrooms are well equuipped with wifi and other support. The library is a nice place to study as well.View more
I believe that Alba is a great place for students with no work experience as well as students with working experience. However, working people should know the commitment that follows by studying at Alba, since the program is very demanding and we have a lot of projects. I appreciate the balance between the theoretical and practical part. The team members at Alba are very organized and the program is very well-structured.View more
The courses are very interesting and I really like them but I believe that some of them could be more engaging. The career prospects brought from Alba are what brought me to apply here. They assist us with whatever we need.View more

I believe there are some things that should be improved. the good thing is that they listen to our suggestions. i highly recommend it.View more
As an exchange student, it was very lovely for me to be at Alba and attend classes with students from different programs and backgrounds. it made me wish i was a full-time student. I loved the Greek culture and the fact that Alba is right next to many touristic spots in Athens. the courses are very rich and a bit different (in a good way) than what i was learning in my initial university. Highly recommended.View more
I was here as an exchange student for one semester. I attended one course each from 4 different curriculums. The most exciting thing about studying at ALBA was to get a chance to interact with international students and to learn a different perspective from experienced peers. The faculties and staff are cooperative and would always help you in your problems.
The only thing that I missed here was the campus life. The ACG campus is far away from the ALBA building, and it is difficult to access all the facilities provided in the campus. It is also equally true that ALBA’s location is strategic, and it is easier to commute here from most of the corporate offices. That’s why I said it is a perfect b-school for the working class. The schedules are also managed by taking into consideration the part-time students.
Overall, my experience in ALBA was enriching. It helped me expand my network beyond boundaries. I would cherish my small stint in ALBA for a lifetime.View more
